  • 2-3 Emergency blankets/foam reflective pads/windshield blockers*
  • Roll of 2" wide tape (I used aluminum tape)
  • Bag of Grommets and crimper
  • Bag of curtain hangers

*I don't know about in the US - I've had these before in my camp pack as "emergency blankets" for protecting you in the event of shock or if you have to sleep somewhere in the cold. The emergency blankets don't have any backing on them, so maybe you might want to glue some foam/paper/cloth to the back. Super 77 tack is perfect for this.
